Hi GymCat Fans!

I hope everyone is getting excited because season is approaching quickly.? The team is working really hard in the gym and we are just starting to put routines together on every event.? On floor, there are 10 new routines that were recently choreographed, so keep an eye out when season comes along.? Everyone has now adjusted to our temporary training facility, but we are eager to move into the brand new gym.? The good news is that they are finally making progress.? The other day they were putting on the roof and started to build the front wall.

Two weeks ago, at the football game, a number of girls on the team were honored on the field for obtaining a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the 2006-2007 school year.? I am very proud to say that the team dedicates as much time in the classroom as they do in the gym.? Following this event, on Tuesday, October 23, most of the team attended the annual spring sports kickoff luncheon, where Bill spoke and introduced the team.? This kickoff meant that season is just around the corner.?

This past weekend the team had a lot going on!? We handed out awards at the Tumbleweeds Annual Halloween Meet on Saturday and on Sunday we had the annual team Halloween party at Billˇ?s house.? Everyone did an awesome job of dressing up this year, including the coaches.? We had just about everything from the three musketeers, a checker board, a she-man, a sock monster, Ronald McDonald, the Kernel from KFC, the King from Burger King, the girl from Wendyˇ?s, Mario and Luigi, all the way up to KISS the band.? The coaches dressed as Elvis, Bob Marley, and Marilyn Monroe.? Everyone did a great job and not only were the pumpkin carvings creative, but John and Bill cooked us some great food!

This weekend, a number of alumni are coming into town for Homecoming.? We are excited and look forward to seeing some old friends!?

Season is just around the corner and the team is excited to perform for all of its loyal fans.? The first home meet is on Friday, January 11th and I hope to see you all there!
